Friday Freakout: Low Pull. Two-Out. Roof Landing. ...

What do you get when a skydiver with only 115 jumps decides to use a camera and impress a girl? A video with too many mistakes to mention. After everything that goes wrong, at least he remembers to collapse his slider, right?! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

When you pay for a pack job, the last thing you’d expect is a step-through and a misrouted toggle (at least that’s what this looks like), yet that’s exactly what Tom got on his next jump. Money well spent :p Watch Video »

A skydiver flips onto his back mid-deployment, which leads to a whole mess of lines entangled around his legs — and likely a dirty pair of underwear. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Watch how this all unfolds… Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Hits Parachute In Freefall After Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Hits Parachute In...

Line twists lead to a cutaway, which sends a skydiver flying through another canopy’s airspace. Yet another reason why proper separation at break-off is so important. And an RSL isn’t a bad idea either, but I’m sure some of you have an opinion about that. Watch Video »

A pilot chute in tow turns into a two-out scenario when the RSL gets caught up. Despite the situation, our friend Stami manages to keep both of his handles like a boss! Watch Video »

Yes, this AFF student spins out of control. And yes, he pulls his reserve at 9,000 feet. But in his defense, the instructor unexpectedly induced the spin after telling the student to pull his reserve if he got separated for any reason (according to the videographer). Not. Cool. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Reserve Parachute Snags On GoPro. Scary Stuff!

Friday Freakout: Reserve Parachute Snags On GoPro....

A wingsuit pilot experiences line twists that lead to a cutaway. The reserve snags on the rear-facing GoPro, which delays and further complicates the reserve deployment until the GoPro mount breaks. If this happened at a much lower altitude or sub-terminal speed (think BASE), the pilot chute may not have generated enough drag to break... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: WTF?! Mangled Malfunction...

If there’s anything worse than exiting a plane at 8,500 feet and pulling by 7,000 feet, it’s having to play cat’s cradle with your lines as your parachute dives towards the earth. Therese managed to get the lines on both left risers around everything else, resulting in this mangled malfunction and many expletives. Watch Video »

I know we all make mistakes, but if skydivers like this are sharing the same airspace as the rest of us, they should at least be wearing home arrest-style ankle bracelets so we can keep track of them in the sky. The madness all starts off with a botched wingsuit rodeo, which turns into a... Watch Video »

If you can land safely after a cutaway that involves your reserve getting entangled with your main canopy and lines flying everywhere, I’d say that’s a good reason to crack a beer, change your underwear and call it a day. This mess happened to my friend (aptly nicknamed) Mali. Not only did her reserve entangle... Watch Video »

If you can’t be bothered to check your alti at least once or don’t notice ground rush below 1,000 feet, then you should sell your rig and take up bowling or knitting. Unfortunately there’s no cure for stupid, but luckily there are AADs, and the double Cypres fire is what saved both of their asses.... Watch Video »

At 60 MPH (about 100 km/h), the crunching sound of this gnarly parachute collision is like watching a car crash… minus the airbags and bumpers. I’m sure both of these skydivers wish they’d tracked just a little bit further apart for more separation. Remember to keep your head up, eyes open, and cover yourself with... Watch Video »
Swooping A Reserve... Like A Boss!

Swooping A Reserve... Like A Boss!

If you’re gonna swoop your reserve, this is the view you want to have and this the parachute you want to do it with. PD rules, and so does this guy. Like a boss! Watch Video »

A reserve ride after a pilot chute in tow turns into a sketchy two-out scenario, leaving this skydiver to think quickly: land the two-out, cutaway the main, or… stuff the inflating main parachute down his chest strap to keep it put? He opts for the latter! Now, let’s play some trivia. With a pilot chute... Watch Video »

This situation escalates quickly, from a simple angle jump to two skydivers being knocked out in freefall. The girl in the white jumpsuit loses control and hits another skydiver in the back of the head/neck. She gets knocked out for the duration of the jump and is saved by her Cypres. The “victim” also gets... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Step-Through Reserve = Double WTF...

When you’re dealing with a spinning malfunction in your wingsuit, the last thing you want (or expect) is a step-through on your reserve once you cutaway. But, hey, there’s a first time for everything. He also probably could’ve done without the backflip through the risers to try and clear the step-through. At least his rigger... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Freak Accident Leads To Cutaway

Guru Khalsa is the victim of a freak accident. The excess brake line gets tangled with his slider stow ball, causing a fast spin and eventually a cutaway. Releasing the right toggle may have fixed the problem, but who knows. At least he’s alive and he found out his reserve works. More importantly, he’s really... Watch Video »

Having a low cutaway around 1,000 feet is never fun, neither is having 6 solid line twists on your reserve. Good thing he had a Skyhook and could clear those line twists by 500ft. Which would you prefer: get stable before deploying your reserve or line twists on an open/flying reserve? Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Dirty Low AAD Fire & Tree Landing

Whooooaaaa Nelly. This is intense! Ben chops a tension knot, doesn’t have an RSL, and can’t find his reserve handle. Luckily his AAD gets his reserve out just in time to save him from the earth… AND he lands without injury despite landing in a tree. WHEW. When it doubt, whip it out. Glad you’re... Watch Video »

In Soviet Russia, underwear soils you! From what I understand from this incident, her cutaway handle wouldn’t chop so she had to run her fingers up the cable housing to manually pull the cutaway cables. Without an AAD, she manages to deploy the reserve only a few seconds before impacting terra firma, and then lands... Watch Video »
